comment How to enable hardware acceleration of video decoding in mplayer with Intel HD3000 on Vivid?
But it clearly isn't. Mplayer uses 40-60% cpu when playing a video where mpv uses only 7. There is no xorg.conf, here are the outputs.

Yes. My system does seem to support it SNA compiled: xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.99.917-1~exp1ubuntu2build1. How can I make use of it in mplayer?

comment How to stop brightness changes (screen dimming) on low battery?
@Tim 5% and then again at 3%, I bevelie. What's even more annoying, it also does it in reverse: when charging it will dim once or twice.

comment Does dist-upgrade will upgrade my Ubuntu from 14.04 LTS to 14.10?
@BlazeTama apt-get dist-upgrade is fine. What I wanted to add is that do-release-upgrade shouldn't upgrade your system to 14.10 either, it should only upgrade once the next LTS release is out.

comment fan does not work
Does the computer overheat? As a general rule, fans don't need to be on all the time, only when necessary.

comment Does dist-upgrade will upgrade my Ubuntu from 14.04 LTS to 14.10?
He would probably need to invoke do-release-upgrade -d or edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades to upgrade from LTS to non-LTS release. Just do-release-upgrade shouldn't do it by default.

comment Openswan's ipsec verify fails on “Two or more interfaces found, checking IP forwarding”
@WillGunn No. I ditched IPsec in favour of OpenVPN. OpenVPN is supported well through VPN API starting with Android 4.something. I remember that IPsec kinda worked on 12.04 though.
